A very uneventful tea for a very uneventful day. I had some of my Taiwan oolong today, the “Yuqian Jinxuan cha”. Typical jinxuan stuff — not great, not too bad, entirely drinkable, utterly boring. I can see why it’s yuqian — the leaves are still very small, bud like. It’s rolled very tight, Taiwan style, and unfurls nicely. Lasts something like 6 infusions before it dies off, but after the 3rd it’s really not that great anymore.
There’s a slight problem with my Taiwan oolong pot though — it’s got a bit of a different coloured clay around the base of the tip of the lid. I’m trying to figure out how I might be able to remove it. It looks like an extra bit of clay that’s stuck on the pot….
